I am sure that many posters have viewed what I reply as being somewhat too direct, perhaps a bit cold, etc.
When I make a post, I not only think of the situation at hand, but I think to everything that could lead up to it and then what follows.
I do not always just give a pat on a back to someone or tell them that they are right and are being mistreated or not understood.
I always try to say whats from my heart and what I have learned after 30+ years in chronic pain.
Thinking back to when I first had spinal problems, I was so angry with everything, the medical field, you name it... Why couldnt they fix me? Well as time went on I understood.
So, please do not take offensive to something I may say in responding to your post. I only want to be honest. If I do upset you, please by all means let me know. If you want to do it in a reply post, that fine, if you want to contact me , via PM or email, thats fine too.
Living life in chronic pain is far from any picnic. Its a tough road, some of us can follow it without problems, some of us need help and then there are some that do not want to go down that road at all.
